Lifesaving President Fred Stokes welcomed the crowd of club members which included all 3 club patrons Ron Want, Keith Peterie and Dave Cush, numerous Life members and a large number of past and present active members and family. As a fitting tribute to Dick who sadly lost his life effecting a rescue in one of Coolum’s darkest hours on Boxing Day 1948, it was announced that the clubs top lifesaving perpetual trophy would be renamed in his honour. It was again very fitting to make the announcement with his niece Crystal, sister-in-law Evangeline and other family members present. Fred gave a recount of the tragic circumstances on that day with acknowledgement of the bravery shown by Dick in such adverse conditions. Three of the five bathers in trouble were saved but sadly a local man from Buderim, an interstate tourist from Victoria and Dick were lost.
Club Treasurer and Life member Ian Norman gave a summary of our planned activities and celebrations as we approach our Centenary Year in 2019, along
with a strong club financial report and details on the progress of proposed storage and members facilities expansion.
Ian also introduced our Summer Surf Girl for the 2017-18 seson Aimee Ting. Aimees campaign launch is Sunday 22nd October with a Champagne Breakfast in the restuarant at 10.00am. She and her team have planned a full program of fundraising and Surf Awareness activities in the lead up to judging in May next year.
The Lifesaving Supporters Club President and Life Member John Ellingsen wrapped up the official part of the afternoon by reporting on the very positive results from the operations upstairs including two Clubs Qld awards for Best Dining in Queensland and Best Sunshine Coast Club for 2017. John thanked everyone again for attending and in particular the family of Dick Lugge and invited all fellow Life Members for a group photo and stay for an afternoon full great food and refreshments to compliment the ever increasing stories from our clubs past.
